Anker Folio Bluetooth Keyboard Case for iPad Air

40W car charger - product

Product Description

Everything you love about your iPad, amplified.

Protection with a flair.

Sporting a sleek synthetic leather exterior, this folio cover looks just like a notebook. Sturdy snap-in brackets and robust fiberglass panels guard your iPad against drops and bumps, while a soft inner lining protects the screen from scratches. So you can be sure of maximum protection without compromising style.

Intelligently intuitive.

By snapping your device to the embedded magnetic strip, the keyboard connects automatically, while the cover provides an upright angle ideal for typing and media playback. For handheld use, the iPad lies flat and securely across the keys. And to trigger your device's sleep or wake mode, simply open or close the cover. Fewer buttons - more automation.

The strong, silent type.

Trade in tapping for typing, and take a break from typos. Low-profile molded keycaps are whisper quiet, while iPad-dedicated hotkeys and an almost full-size layout complete the ideal typing experience. Enjoy a comfortable and efficient keyboard without having to sacrifice portability.

Six-month stamina.

At Anker, quality products just make sense. So we built in a super-sized battery that keeps you going for six months or more between charges, freeing you to worry less and work (or play) more. And after being idle for 10 minutes, the keyboard automatically enters sleep mode. Zzzzzzzz.

  • Magnet strength
  • Only downside is that sometime the magnet that holds the iPad in place is not strong enough and it falls down.

  • I use this for work and it is great. I am able to type discreetly during meetings

  • Well setup, easy to use, on-par for price point.
  • I really like this case! Connected easily, iPad sits easily, keyboard is easy and intuitive to use, even with my big hands. I like the way it folds out and the iPad stays magnetized to the bar, and that the magnets also trigger the keyboard on and off, and turn the screen off. My one beef is that the leatherette material on the outside feels and looks a little cheap, but I guess that's to be expected at this price-point. It also seems like the iPad can be a little hard to get out of the cradle for storage, and hard to pop back in. So far had it for 3 weeks and no issues. I like that if I do happen to damage or need to replace it, I can get another one and still be ahead of the other brands that the big-box stores push.

  • Very professional and functional keyboard case. Highest quality.
  • I've only had this keyboard case for about a week now. I am really impressed with it. I had a choice of any keyboard case onliine, and after reading, and in at least one case, watching, the reviews, I chose this one. The leather-like portfolio look is very professional. I love the simplicity of the magnetic strip holding the Ipad Air in place. The Smart function works as advertised, turning the tablet on and off with the opening and closing of the case respectively. I did not experience any of the difficulties mentioned in some of the reviews. The magnetic stip is sufficiently strong, but not overly strong; it does not take a great deal of effort to move the tablet from its home position to the strip and back again. I don't find the lack of a mechanical closure to be a shortcoming; it's a portfolio, and having some kind of strap would take away from it's appearance and function. This is a great keyboard. I can type on it just as fast as I could a full sized keyboard. I like that the commonly used punctuation keys are in the same place as on a full sized keyboard. You might have to get used to the postion of the backslash or delete key, but I didn't find that much of an incumberance. As soon as I revealed my purchase to my coworkers, they were ready to spring for one themselves. Some of them had resigned themselves to going without a keyboard, because they were so disappointed with their purchase. Not me. I am very happy with this keyboard. Can't you tell? I also like the way the screen will fold down over top of the keyboard to allow you to hold it vertically like if reading a book and using the onscreen keypad, instead of folding it behind and having the keyboard exposed. All of the receptacles, buttons, speakers, cameras, etc. are exposed; this is a very form fitting case, with a well thought out design. I didn't like the idea of having to fool with pulling out straps or hinges and turning some device to go to vertical; that just didn't work for me. If you want an exceptionally well designed case that looks like an elegant leather portfolio, you can't go wrong with this keyboard case.

I got this for Christmas.  It worked for awhile but now it doesn't go on when the ipad snaps onto the magnetic strip.  A green light comes on but, then it doesn't type.

The magnetic strip is not involved in how the keyboard case communicates with your iPad. The keyboard case is a Bluetooth device. It sounds like your two components aren't paired properly (they probably were at one time and something changed, maybe Bluetooth has been shut off or the profile deleted). For help with this, scroll up on this page to where you see "Instruction Manuals & Drivers" and use it as a guide to pair your units. For further assistance just drop an email to

No support for forward-Delete?

Just received mine.  It appears that it doesn't support foward-Delete.  On Macs (and the Logitech Ultrathin keyboard for iPad Air), this is accomplished via fn-Delete.  On this product, fn-Delete simply kills the Bluetooth connection.  Am I missing something?  Is there some other way of accomplishing forward-Delete that I'm just not seeing?

I hope there's a workaround, as I love the Anker keyboard but this will be a deal-breaker for me.

The delete button alone should do this, does that not work?

Please give our customer service team a shout at for further help.

The Delete key works as a standard delete key -- that is, backing over the text, deleting what is to the left of the cursor.  This is fine, but it's not forward-Delete.

Forward-Delete "sucks up" what is to the right of the cursor, deleting what is forward from the cursor's own position.

A small thing, but essential for some of us.  MacBook keyboards allow it;  Logitech's Ultrathin allows it, simply by allowing the Delete key to be *just* a delete key (and not doubling it up with some custom function like Bluetooth toggling that apparently overrides iOS' native fn-Delete recognition).

I love the Anker TC980 otherwise, but if it can't do forward-Delete, it will be endlessly frustrating for me and I'll have to return it.  I'll stick with my Logitech Ultrathin and hope that Anker eventually releases a redesign that lets the Delete key just be a Delete key and doesn't override Apple's own naturalized functionality.

Scarce availability on
I see one seller on, charging US$145.00 which seems very high. Nobody else sells this product. Will you make more of them available soon?

check ankerdirect store on eBay, they are selling it on its original price

I understand Anker does that when products are out of stock to discourage people from buying it.
Reply Report as spam Dec 29, 2014 at 7:29 PM
We do work closely with Amazon to limit other people trying to sell our products but it's very difficult to control other sellers on the Amazon Market Place.

We're happy to advise that the AnkerDirect store now has it available on Amazon and eBay again!

I can not get the key board paired with my ipad air.  what is the procedure? I have charged both the Ipad air and the key board.

Try pairing it with another Bluetooth device. This will help show if the problem is with the keyboard or your iPad.

Then get in touch with our customer service guys at and let them know, they'll be able to help further.

Ok for ipad Air
Hello,It's fully compatible with iPad Air 2 ?Regards

Compatible yes. Do you mean in terms of fit, as the Air 2 is a bit slimmer. I haven't physically snapped the Air 2 in yet.

The iPad Air 2 will connect with the keyboard but it won't fit with the base properly.

Foreign language input
Hi, I'm thinking about buying this keyboard for my IPad Air, but I need to know if there is a shortcut that I can use to switch the language input.  I use three different languages on my iPad, and on the virtual keyboard on the screen, I can just tap the little globe sign to switch from language to language (the keys stay the same, but the input changes). Please let me know if this is possible on your keyboard.  Thank you!

Yes, you can press Command + Space bar and it'll switch between input languages.

Using the keyboard
Can anyone tell me how to find the £ (GBP) sign on this keyboard.
Replies(1) Collapse Report as spam Jul 12, 2014 at 6:01 PM

If you have the UK version then the £ sign will be coupled with the number '3' key. If you have the American version then it isn't on there.
